Fishing Report – January 16, 2014

As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 461.82 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 462.04 msl).

Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service said the water level at greers ferry is falling with a lot of generation. The surface water temperature has been in the high 30s up to 44 degrees. The hybrid and white bass fishing is still going good and getting better every day. The edges of muddy and clear water are where the best bite will be on spoons, hair jigs in-line spinners and Alabama rigs. Try from 43 feet out to 70 feet the best results. Crappie are biting minnows and jigs; they are suspended in the pole timber and over bush piles 15-25 feet deep. Bass fishing hit a snag with the cold weather and muddy water, but is picking back up on bluff walls and out deep on Alabama rigs and crankbaits as well as a football head jigs and spoons. No report on bream. Walleye are on the move to he main feeders and smaller creeks. The walleye should be ready to drop eggs soon; try tolling crankbaits and using a grub, jerk bait or jig tipped with a minnow. No report on catfish.
